    Can i ask if anyone is delivering any of the new GCSE citizenship 9-1 quals? How are you finding them? I started delivering AQA in September but have found it challenging in terms of content and the students have really struggled (i teach in a KS4 PRU, so levels are also well below average) Have had a lot more success with the prep for working life.
    I am starting a new job in another PRU in september and have been asked if I would do citizenship as well there as they want another GCSE for students, but i've explained about my reservations for this. I wondered if there is an exam board with a spec more suited to these students, or an alternative qualification at gcse level.
    I think partly because i struggle myself with some of the content - having to learn it as i go, then i find it hard to make it fun and engaging.
    Any advice greatly appreciated. Have hated delivering it this year and did not apply for new job just to do it again!

    Finding it tough - not much to work on really. Expecting poor results but shame as students enjoy it. I teach Year 9 GCSE so not ideal either.

    If its a PRU then does it have to be a GCSE? You could do a FS in PSHE?
